Vale Community Impact, VCI (formerly WIAC)

Vale Community Impact logo

From April 2021, Wantage Independent Advice Centre has been re-named Vale Community Impact, or, VCI.

The change in name better reflects our core remit that we are “In the Vale for the Vale”, offering many more services than Independent Advice from a Centre in Wantage!

We have a new website and facebook name and we will continue to deliver our well- established services within our communities with our new name and logo.

For those who don’t know us, we offer a free independent advice service, our specialisms are debts, benefits, employment, housing and relationships.  Our volunteer run the Transport Service which takes residents all over the area for medical appointments, day centres etc.  Our Good Neighbour Service matches residents and volunteers to buddy up and chat or to undertake small household tasks.

We are, as ever, looking for volunteers for any of our services across the Vale of White Horse area.  If you think you may like to volunteer, please email

Our address and phone number 01235 765348 remain the same.
